U.S. Sens. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson on Monday announced a commission to help them recommend candidates to the president for U.S. marshal.

Johnson, R-Oshkosh, and Baldwin, D-Madison, already have a Federal Nominating Commission in place, helping them suggest candidates for vacancies in the judiciary and U.S. attorney spots.

But the new commission will cover the U.S. marshal appointments for Wisconsin’s two districts.

The commission will be made up of:

*Christopher Domagalski, the president of the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association and Sheboygan’s chief of police;
*Nancy Hove, the Pierce County sheriff and president of the Wisconsin Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Association;
*Mark Podoll, the Green Lake County sheriff who’s also first vice president of the Badger State Sheriffs’ Association;
*and Gerald Staniszewski, the Eau Claire chief of police who chairs the Wisconsin Police Executive Group.

The state Department of Justice is helping with the application process and is taking resumes for the two appointments. Applications are due to usmarshalapp@doj.state.wi.us by 5 p.m. on Aug. 14.

Both of the current U.S. marshals in Wisconsin were sworn in under the Obama administration in 2010.

Kevin Carr, the U.S. marshal for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, previously worked at the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office.

Dallas Neville, the U.S. marshal for the Western District of Wisconsin, did a prior stint in the role from 1994 to 2002 after spending six years as Clark County sheriff. He later was on the Eau Claire City Council and worked at the state Department of Military Affairs.

A Johnson aide said they will stay in place until two new appointees are selected and confirmed by the Senate.
